Fire Weather Planning Forecast for PUERTO RICO
National Weather Service SAN JUAN PR
432 AM AST Wed May 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...A general drying trend is forecast to continue for
the next couple of days as a dense mass of Saharan Dust remain
across the local area. RH will briefly reach 40-50 percent and
winds around 15-20 MPH can be expected at times. However, the
limiting factor is the condition of the fuels. At this time, most
of the fuels remain green due to the rains of late April and
early May. As a result...fire danger threat will remain between
low to moderate.
